Beer pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is slightly toasted, crackery grain, lemon and just a slightly spicy note, really slight. Lemon and grain on the front followed by a bit of spice (again, just a slight bit) and then a long persistent, bitter finish. Not really a pleasantly floral hop bitterness bit more of an acrid bitterness. Carbonation is a bit unrefined as well, I wanted something a little creamier given the style. Definitely not one of Boston Beer's finest, although I remain a fan of some of their other stuff.
